Daiwa Tatula Tat711Mhrb

Welcome to the forum.  Nope.  Do have a couple other Tatula rods.  Very nice rods.

I have had quite a bit of time with that rod, along with 3 others, and I like it best with spinnerbaits, swim jigs, squarebills, traps, and things of that nature. Moving baits that benefit from long casts, sharp hooks, and reeling hook sets. I find the action too heavy for standard cranking duties. It is very sensitive and crisp with a mod-fast action and a heavy backbone. At less than 4oz, the rod itself is lightweight overall, but benefits from an ~8oz reel as it is a bit tip heavy. You want a heavier duty brass geared reel for the techniques thus rod was designed for anyway, so it works out great. I use a 6.3:1 ratio t3 ballistic with a 100mm handle on mine with excellent results. If you use braided line, it makes for a good worm/jig rod as well, but I prefer the better balance and faster tip of the 6101mhfb for those techniques. Overall, it's an excellent rod that goes for way less than what it's worth in comparison to other offerings like Loomis' e6x for example. In short, you'll love it. Tight lines!

I currently have 2 of them - for the price, cannot beat it. It looks great, is light, and quite durable as I am really rough with my fishing equipment. I use my 7" - MED for crankbaits while i use 6'10 for MH for Texas Rigs and etc. 

 

Overall - I am very pleased with Daiwa's Tatula Line up. I have the Tatula Type R matched with them.

Where did you find this rod?  I kept waiting for Walmart to drop the price to $100 but it never happened before the rod got sold out.  The 7'4" H is suppose to be a very versatile rod.  Congrats on the new rod.
